Hi all! I apologize for my first post on this site being a request, but I would really love to have the poem "The New Colossus" by Emma Lazarus translated to Arabic, particularly the closing lines of the poem, the words of the Mother of Exiles:

Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!

I've been able to find the poem in many other languages, the closest to Arabic being Persian, but so far I haven't come across an Arabic version. If anyone can provide a translation, I would be incredibly grateful.

Thanks so much!


I found the following translation. If someone could just provide a confirmation of its accuracy, that would be greatly appreciated. Just as a heads-up, for some reason the text direction was changed from right-to-left to left-to-right when I pasted it here, but I'm aware that the direction should be flipped.

أعطـوني جماهيركـم المُتعَّبة المُثقلة المسـكينة المتزاحمـــة
جماهيركم الهاجعة التي تتـوق إلى استنشاق نسيـم الحــريـة
إلـيَّ بالبـؤسـاء والتعسـاء والمتضـايقين والمُـزدرى بهـم!
أرسـلوا إليَّ المُشـرَّدين الذين تتقـاذفهم العـواصف والأنـواء
ها أنا في استقبالهم رافعة مُصباحي على مقربة من الباب الذهبي!

I also came across this translation, which certainly translates more coherently through Google Translate. Again though any second opinions would be very helpful.

اعطني المتعبون، الفقراء، كتلك المجموعه
,التي تشتاق الى تنفس
الحريه.المهملون والبؤسا الذين يحتشدون
على الشواطئ. ارسل هؤلاء، المشردون
بعد العواصف الي، فأنا أرفع مصباحي
بجانب الباب الذهبي.
